    How much does 2-stroke oil cost? Whats the price per gallon (minus price of gasoline)?

    Where are you located?......you can score a qt for $1 on the sale table at the hardware store, or you can pay above $20 qt for some super specialty oils. I make mine expensive by using Amsoil in the $8 range and adding a little castor oil. And even then my cost per year isn't all that high.

    It really depends on the oil type, base oil, additives, etc.

    I buy it at Wal-mart for, I think, $5.95 a pint.

    So it ends up that a gallon of fuel mixture costs (roughly) a buck more than just a gallon of gasoline.

    But don't let that worry you; these bikes are so good on gas that that galloon of fuel mix might last you three weeks. I don't even budget for it. Leftover dollars is enough.

    for the plain old (been around forever) 2-stroke oil

    aprox 3 to 5 dollars a quart

    can be found almost anywhere -- auto parts, gas stations wallmart an so many more

    how much from a quart would go into a gallon of gas
    just a guess -- been a while -- 25 cents or a little less
    remember -- this is the cheaper 2-stroke oil

    ride that thing

    hey is that wallmart oil any good ???
    Just wondering, Can't beat the price.
    you can buy a gallon and it would last for 3 years.

    Yes the walmart oil is fine, just make sure its for air cooled engines and not the marine oil.
